Los Angeles producers and songwriters Toyko (Matt Wiggers and Zac White) have released their new single “The Void”. The track marks the first release by NEH Records, founded by music marketing expert Anthony Pacheco and Isaac Wilson, vocalist of the rock band Dwellings from Tragic Hero Records.
Speaking on the story behind the song, Zac White said, “‘The Void’ tells the story of being born with innate flaws into an imperfect world, but realizing we are too special to let that bring us down. Inspired by the lore behind the NEAR Extinct Heroes universe, I wanted the lyrics to make the listener feel empowered. Overcoming tyranny, and becoming the victor of your own narrative are recurring themes throughout the song.
It’s interesting, my approach when writing the lyrics was very much from the perspective of the Heroes in the NEH lore. However, as I continued writing the song, and now as I listen back, I think what started as a fictional story now resonates with a very real message. Don’t give in to the darkness of this world, find the light in yourself and become your own hero.”
